Random Curiousity Fall 2015 preview

Here it is.

UPDATE: OK, I'll watch one (repeat one) episode of each of these:

Hacka Doll (Search engines anthropomorphized as cute girls.)

Rakudai Kishi no Cavalry (A guy and girl assigned as roommates)

Onsen Yousei Hakone-chan (Loli Kami of hot springs)

JK Meshi (High School Girls cooking)

Ore ga Ojou-sama Gakkou etc. (One boy in a school full of girls)

Gochuumon wa Usagi Desuka (Cute girls doing cute things in coffee shops. Also, Rize's guns.)

Ani Tore EX (Isshoni Training without Hinako, and probably no gainaxing)

They're all cheap thrills, and I think it highly unlikely I'll want to watch any more of any of them.

(And I have less-than-zero interest in "One Punch Man." Words cannot express how uninterested I am in that show.)

Heavy Object would be interesting - but the problem I have with it (Having tried to read the light novel series the anime is based on.) is something that I have when trying to read any works by Kazuma Kamachi - I do not get the magic that makes them popular.  Some of them can not even claim to be very imaginative, for that matter - The Zashiki Warashi of Intellectual Village series seem to descend way too often to stereotypes and clichés in the course of the story - that it appears the only reason why they would be popular is because they were written by the same author who wrote A Certain Magical Index.

When Battletech appears to have a better thought-out storyline than Heavy Object, you know there is a problem.

2 I'm thinking maybe Komori-san, Lucifer, JK-Meshi, Fushigi na Someta-chan. One-Punch Man, absolutely. Otherwise, too many pre-rejected sequels for bad shows. Way too many.

3 It's been a while since we've had a season as bleak as this one. The only show I think I might end up watching beyond one episode is Rakudai Kishi no Cavalry. I figure there's about 1 chance in 10 that it will be worthwhile. The rest are a lost cause; they may be good for plundering but they won't be worth watching.

4 Steve, you're not the target audience for One Punch Man.  I read both version of the manga and cannot wait for it myself.
You may want to give Heavy Object a shot as it's based on the novel written by the guy who did Magical Index.

5 Komori-san is the only one I plan to watch.  I was *slightly* engaged by Heavy Object and Valkyrie Drive until I read more about them.

Steve, you're not the target audience for One Punch Man.

You better believe I'm not. But I've already had one person tell me I had to watch it because it was sooo coool... and I wanted to head that off.

You may want to give Heavy Object a shot as it's based on the novel written by the guy who did Magical Index.

I thought I had made "may want to" a rejection string? (Oh, that was "might want to". Gotta go update that.)

I don't care who wrote it; Giant Mech wish-fulfilment shows are off my list.

7 It's been a while since we've had a season as bleak as this one.

I was wondering how long it would take for you to say this, since you invariably say it every season.

8 We had a really good summer - I've been following three shows week-to-week, which never happens.  So this meh fall season is double meh by contrast.

9 I was mostly playing (reading, really) Fragment's Note on iPad (purely by accident - it's in Google Store too but I forgot to check before I bought from iTunes). That left me little time for anime. I'm 2 weeks behind on Cinderella Girls.

Cinderella Girls is being bumped by a special for this week, and two weeks from now.  So you have plenty of time to get caught-up.
